"Paternity" refers to legal recognition that a man is the father of a child. It comes with certain rights, such as visitation, and responsibilities, such as providing financial support. These become especially important when two parents are not or are no longer married. Divorce is usually a difficult and emotionally painful experience, but when children are involved, matters can quickly become even worse. Ideally, a child whose parents are divorcing should be given equal access to two loving parents. Unfortunately, all too often reality is very different, and children end up paying the price. Even when both parents do desire to continue caring for the child, custody decisions may unfairly favor one parent over the other. The question of child custody can therefore be one of the most difficult aspects of a divorce. Without an attorney who understands the complexities of the custody system, your rights as a father may be taken away. Proper support, on the other hand, can help to ensure that you retain your father's rights in a way that is best for your child. Therefore, competent, qualified legal representation can change the future course of your life and that of your children.
